Paid event jobs stewarding at Camp Bestival 2021!

Tuesday, July 13, 2021

We're excited to let you know we have paid event jobs available stewarding at Camp Bestival in Dorset!

The roles are based on the festival gates scanning and wristbanding customers arriving, and also in the accessible campsite and on the disabled viewing platforms.

We have 94 paid positions available at this summer's Camp Bestival with a choice of shifts as below:

  • Quantity of shifts: Either 3 or 4 shifts depending on position
  • First day: Thursday 29th or Friday 30th
  • Last day: Sat 31st Jul, Sun 1st Aug or Mon 2nd Aug
  • Shift times: One 8 hour shift per day, either Early 08:00 to 16:00 or Late 16:00 to 00:00

Pay will be £8.91 an hour plus one meal voucher per shift. All Hotbox staff camp together in our crew compound which offers a marquee with free hot drinks and charging points!

No experience is required for these roles; full training will be provided at Camp Bestival.

Paying your deposit

As usual, you need to pay a refundable security deposit to work with us this summer.

When working with Hotbox Events you only need to pay 1 deposit to work at as many festivals as you like each summer!

Deposits are returned within 30 days of the last day of a festival, if you have worked with us before your deposit is discounted by 35%. There are no admin fees charged on deposits, so you receive your entire deposit back as long as you complete all of your shifts at the festivals!

Of course, if for any reason a festival does not go ahead, your security deposit will be returned to you in full.

Please remember that we cannot confirm your place until you have paid your deposit!

Choosing shifts

You can choose the shifts you prefer before the festival and we will confirm your shifts in advance, so you know when you will be working and can plan your festival schedule!

If you have not worked at a festival before and are wondering what it is like, checkout some of our staff interviews!

In the interviews you will get to hear from those who have joined us talking about how they found their shifts, how they felt they were looked after by the Hotbox team, what it was like working solo for the first time, taking on more responsibility year on year and progressing into new roles, and even how the experience and confidence gained has helped with career progression away from festivals!


Another way to see what working at festivals is like is to check out some of our festival photos

In our festival photo galleries, you will find thousands of photos covering our festival history over the past twenty years!

Going Solo

If you are thinking about joining us but not sure about going solo you do not need to worry, every year more than half of those who work with us do so on their own the first time and then return year on year to meet up with friends they have made!
